Tottenham are having one of their best seasons ever and currently sit in the top four with a realistic chance of winning the title. They might be five points behind Leicester City in the race for the title but Mauricio Pochettino has made Tottenham tough to beat and with Spurs also in the UEFA Europa League, they could end up with some silverware at the end of the season.
While Tottenham were always known to be a one man team during the time of Gareth Bale or Luca Modric or Dimitar Berbatov but this side is different and it is a collective effort from the goalkeeper to the striker all play an important role for the team.
Tottenham might not have the financial flex that other clubs do and will be a target for many sides who would want to make their team better by poaching their players. Spurs though have to be resolute and we pick out three players who Tottenham should not sell, no matter what happens.
Starting right from the top, Harry Kane has been one of the best strikers in the Premier League since his breakthrough season last year. Kane ended up scoring 31 goals last time around and already have 18 in all competitions this season.
All doubts about him being a one season wonder are over for the moment and his game play resonates just how Tottenham play these days. A never say die attitude, relentless running and a lot of energy, not to mention an eye for goal. Kane was subject to a ludicrous rumour of being a target for Real Madrid last season and more such rumours will follow at the end of this season as well.
The Dane might not be in the limelight as much as some of the other Tottenham attackers this season, Dele Alli is the one player that most people are talking about but the 23-year-old has been one of the most consistent players in the attack for Tottenham since signing for them in 2013.
It certainly was a coup to sign the Danish international and the payoffs keep on coming. Eriksen is brilliant on the dead ball and has tremendous pace and control of the ball plus has an eye for goal too. He has ended each of the last two seasons scoring more than 10 goals and has six for this season already; certainly his goals help the side when others aren’t clicking.
While Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are a couple of players that Tottenham should hold on to, Jan Vertonghen actually tops the list in terms of giving them great defensive stability. This isn’t a Tottenham team that always concedes like they used to. They are great in defence and that is down to this Belgian.
Vertonghen though has a great partnership with fellow Belgian Toby Alderweireld and this partnership has led to the best defence in the league. Vertonghen might be injured in the final run up and that could be a great loss for Spurs but hopefully he will be back to his best and with a Premier League winner’s medal soon.
